Hi. In the US here. Still awaiting info about my pledge which I have yet to receive. Please advise soonest. Thanks!
Still didn't receive mine you guys said it was in transit 4 months ago this is ridiculous.
Just received my tape, thanks
This is a wonderful product :D
I didn’t get my pledge yet (in Brazil), but it shall be on its way. Would you happen to have a tracking number? Cheers!
Also still waiting, here in South Africa, but very excited to get this product
Hi. I've yet to receive my pledge. Could you kindly provide me some information? Thanks
Waiting on the arrival of my third role, What a fantastic product, I repair fly rods, split cane, and ordinary fishing poles. The first roll went into experiments, some worked right away and some need some tuning. The second role is on the top of my travel repair kit. Saves me hours using it as a third hand, and to fashion replacement ferrules and parts while waiting for a order to get here.. Many happy customers. Even an emergency tool retriever. That tape does it all.
Would really like to know if and when I’ll get my reward, any info would be much appreciated.
Dear Sir, I didn't get any shipping info yet. Is it possible to check out if my Braeön was sent out and get tracking number?

I received mine.
I received mine with the bonus amount.
The tin broke its way out of the package during shipping. Braeön promptly replaced the tin after I let them know.
10/10, Would pledge to this company on kickstarter again. :-)
I retract my previous comment and apologise for it. I recieved mine plus bonus amount today. Thank you.
Stoked, received mine today and got a few things to try out.
Got mine today! Adelaide, Australia. For any Aussies still waiting, remember that Christmas/New Year's can create a backlog in deliveries.
Thanks to the Braeon team - I never doubted that they would come through!
Still waiting for mine!
A shipping tracking number would've been really really helpful!
I got mine! Cool tin, btw! Order doubled so I can share the wealth. Also, I got the mug which is super cool! Way better than expected. Now to get my gears turning and experiment with this new material.... Pretty sure I'll be using this on some splints for the dogs at the vet hospital.... Among other things!!! Thanks Braeön! Congratulations on a successful campaign
If someone in New Zealand has theirs we all should as it is at the ### end of the world, I know, I was born there. Point is, based on distance it would be the last to be delivered IF that is they were all posted the same time..... something does not seem quite kosher...... me in Australia. :)
Just received mine today in Texas and they doubled my order. So excited as I can give it to my husband for Christmas, thought he may be able to use it on his Goalie sticks, guess we will see how well it works. Thanks so much from this backer :)
Still waiting for mine... I don't know if I should laugh or cry.
Got my tapes today, but I already forgot what I planned to use it with :p
Btw, would you guys cut the tape into pieces before forging it? If so, how long would you keep each piece so that it looks less bulky but still remain functionalities?
Still waiting in NC.
The Braeön website now has a Shopping Cart now with one option for a 20-foot roll and tin for $24.95 USD. (I have 7 rolls from my Kickstarter pledge, so I’m not quite ready to order more.)
I’m looking forward to seeing the applications of the product on YouTube. Please feel free to share on his comment page the ways YOU have used it!
Cheers guys I got mine in New Zealand and I got extra length much appreciated. I will try it later see how it goes. Have a Merry Christmas and All the best for 2018, wishing you every success with future endeavours.
Still waiting for it ! Country of destination : France !
Got mine in the mail today, was wondering what it was because I wasn't expecting anything! Received the correct amount (tin + 20ft + 20ft extra). Located in New York. Thank you! looking forward to trying it out!
Here's my unboxing video
Received, including the backed tin and double the total length of ribbon. Thank you! Now if only I could remember what I was going to use it for, it's been so long... :-)
Pledged for two 20 ft rolls with tins - got those two tins and two extra rolls (without tins). Thanks.
Did anyone get the Braeon tin? I only received one roll and the packing slips shows two rolls with a tin....????
I received the product.
In the post there is only one roop and two two warning paper
This one roop is include 2 of roop?
Received everything as it should be. Thanks again can't wait to come with uses.
Received product , can't wait to use it !
Got mine today. Doesn’t seem to bad. Can’t wait to use it.
We received our package last week, doubled as promised. Thanks, team!
Got my package today. Double me reward. Love it. Crazy strong stuff can’t wait to buy more!
Got mine today, 40ft worth. I hope it works as advertised
Woo hoo my stuff arrived....but it isn’t what backed and it isn’t double ( per a previous post). I’m short over 20 feet of backed product and an additional 66 feet per the campaign doubling orders due to delay. Please correct immediately.
I must admit I’m gobsmacked that we got such a positive and informative update, I’d completely written this one off. However I will still remain sceptical until it actually arrives, as the logistics side of things can go very pear-shaped especially for a startup who’s got little or no experience with that process. Fingers crossed that this will deliver with only a modicum of fuss.
Several negative comments but I'm actually happy with this. The extra material will make a great gift to some of my more handy friends and the low declared value keeps customs out of my pocket. Thank you, glad to hear it's all coming together. Would only be better if it came in before Christmas.
An update! Honestly, I had lost faith and stopped checking the comments here so long ago, I even forgot I backed this.
Very thrilled to maybe/hopefully finally get my hands on this...
Not holding my breath, though, since "we're shipping" on Kickstarter tends to mean "but not necessarily to you anytime soon".
Declared value of $2..... that means this stuff is on the slow boat direct from China, folks!
Also the whole selling point of this material is that it was supposed to be literally as strong as steel... is that no longer the case?
Does this mean we should expect 4x what we signed up for originally, as all rewards were already doubled?
@JK, Thank you for the update!!
Agreed that update should’ve been posted to this campaign. Bad form...
How hard would it have been to copy and paste the message in the website into the form of an update for your initial backers.... wait to go y’all
so guys, this was on the website: http://braeon.com/

Dear Braeön Supporters:
The last of the components of our first production machine were delivered (finally) on October 17 th . Assembly was completed on November 2nd , debugging and product testing took place over the past 10 days. Some minor “tweaking” remains, but production began on November 13th and product shipments will begin this week! One important fact you should know is that the ribbon being produced has a strength rating of 1000 lbs. The Kickstarter video makes a claim that “one single ribbon resists over 2500 Lbs of pull strength”. A single length of ribbon was fashioned into a double loop in the test so it was really 4x which showed a force reading of 3205 Lbs. We admit that was a bit misleading. To make it up to you we will ship double the amount you signed up for. Those of you who signed up for a challenge to video your attempt to break a 6 foot loop, we are sending you 20 feet to fashion whatever size loop you wish. What we don’t want is for anyone to get injured in the process so PLEASE be careful.
Shipping was prepaid by all of you. All other non U.S. locations may be responsible for payment of duties, if any. We consider all products that fulfill Kickstarter program supporters as samples and therefore will have a declared value of $2.00 USD. Stay tuned to the Braeön website for a “SHOP” option www.braeon.com.
Thank you for all your patience and enthusiasm. We want to hear from you and how you have used Braeön. We will be emailing everyone with more details over the next few months.
If a sale of the co then a refund of $75k would not be too difficult and then we can buy it for half the price when it hits stores.
oh-well guess I'll just need to carry something which is as equally useful for getting out of a bind in the wilderness.... a SAT phone. I did so want to use $30 of cool material to fix a $2 axe handle and the concept of lifting great weights with a bit of plastic seemed so necessary at the start of the campaign.
